Equipartition of energy: the average energy of every quadratic term in the energy expression for classical system has the same value, ½ kT. For a simple 3D one-component system we have T k 2 3 K(t) B Potential energy per atom is usually computed together with forces ( implemented in F-pair.f & Temper.f
